This ’90’s home in West University Place (Houston) is being remodeled, and the homeowners wanted the wallpaper put up before the plumbing fixtures went into the room. I was happy, because it is sooo much easier to hang paper when you don’t have to work around the toilet and sink. The vanity is particularly tricky, because it stands on four tall legs and is open underneath, so you have to cut around the legs and pipes.

This small pattern and two-tone color scheme does not overwhelm the room, but adds sparkle and personality. The homeowner and I decided it would look better on that sloped part of the ceiling, even though there is no crown molding at the top.

This pattern is by G P & J Baker, a British manufacturer, called “Flora,” pattern # PW 4507. It is a thick, somewhat stiff, and somewhat spongy non-woven material, and is a paste-the- wall product.
